Police kill angry man wielding a machete

(KPRC) KPRC 2 News has obtained new video of the moments a machete-wielding man confronted deputies and was later fatally shot.

The man who shot the video said shouts from the parking lot and several police cars drew his attention.

The video gives us the clearest pictures yet of how long police worked to get this man under control before shots were fired.

According to KPRC, it happened Tuesday morning when a Harris County Precinct 6 deputy constable was called to the 3200 block of Telephone Road.

Police said the man was mad because he had missed his chance to buy a ticket for a bus trip. At one point the man with the machete can be seen in the video confronting a deputy, as they try to calm him down.

Later though, the man tries to steal a patrol car by smashing the window and grabbing the keys from a deputy.

Police said they shot the man after a Taser didn’t stop him and he swung at officers with the machete.
